Frenchys restaurant in Bangrak is a romantic French bistro that offers a romantic take on traditional French cuisine.

Frenchys is owned and run by Executive chef Patrick Wursching, who discovered his passion for the culinary arts as a young boy when he helped his mother prepare the family meals. Her enthusiasm and love of good food not only inspired Patrick, but his two brothers too, with one studying to be a pastry chef and a sommelier it seemed only natural that Patrick would follow in their footsteps.frenchys 2

After graduating from culinary school he honed his skills some impressive locations such as a casino in Bern, Switzerland operated by George V and at the Castel Hyde Hotel in Ireland owned by Lord of the Dance Michael Flatley, he later found himself in Bermuda, New York, the UK and now, luckily for the visitors and residents of Koh Samui he is in Bangrak.
